Dua Between Sujood Meaning In English
Dua between sujood means O Allah forgive me, have mercy on me, guide me, support me, give me health, grant me sustenance and raise my rank.
All of this incorporates all what you need in this life and the hereafter.
Forgive me, have mercy upon me, guide me: All of this is asking Allah to what benefits you in the hereafter.
Mend my affairs and grant me health, sustenance and raise my rank: All of this in this dunya. You need this, without it you can’t go on, you can’t live.
This is how we worship Allah. This is how a proper Muslim worship Allah 24/7.
It’s not going to the Maajid on Friday and it’s not going to church on Sunday, and then the rest of the week we don’t know anything about our religion and how to deal with others.
It is a full package, it’s a package deal. You take it all or leave it all. And this is the beauty of Islam.
This is why all non Muslims come to Islam in the hundreds of thousands and in the millions. What brings them to it?
This connection between the servant and his Lord. No mediators, there’s no one in between. And this is why other religions will look into how the Muslims pray to their Lord glorifying him, not anyone else.
He has no associates, no one can come and say listen, Allah has an associate, He has a son, and this son of His created Mars or Venus. Nobody ever claimed that.
Everybody knows that it’s only Him who is the creator of the heavens and the Earth and what’s between them.
This is why we devote all of our worship and all of our love, all of our ibada, all of our gratitude and submissiveness to Him alone.
